Automotive

Cars are a significant factor in terms of the technological freedom of people and the economic growth of nations, and act as the driving force of industrial development due to their capacity to affect other industries, including distribution and the service industry.

The high level of technification and the continuous search for excellence in production processes in the automotive and aeronautics industries are also transferred to the environmental sphere.

Accordingly, aware that the environmental factor constitutes a competitiveness element that is on the rise, the sector is focussing its efforts on increasing the efficiency of its manufacturing processes while trying to meet one of the greatest environmental challenges: the search for viable alternatives that guarantee better management of the resources used, including water.

Aqualogy has placed its knowledge and state-of-the-art technologies at the disposal of the automotive and aeronautics industries. Its main objectives are the optimisation of water resources, efficiency improvements in productive processes related to water, the minimisation of management and operating costs, the reduction of the impact on the environment and the improvement of personnel awareness and training, with the aim of contributing to compliance with objectives and improving the quality of processes.

Aqualogy has successfully carried out an analysis of the indoor water network in order to detect leaks with an acoustic technique based on hydrolocators, which has led to a reduction in the factory’s water consumption.

GUARANTEEING THE SUPPLY OF WATER RESOURCES

Water is an essential element in productive processes, so it is necessary to guarantee both its quantity and its quality. Aqualogy conducts studies and carries out actions to search for alternative catchment sources, contingency plans that ensure the supply, water storage systems, etc.

OPTIMISATION OF WATER-RELATED INFRASTRUCTURE

One of the best methods of reducing water consumption at plants is to start by optimising the existing infrastructure (water treatment plants, water networks, cooling installations, etc.). This optimisation provides the knowledge of the current situation required to take action to improve the technical performance of the infrastructure and reduce management costs.

ENVIRONMENTAL AND HEALTH CONTROL AND SAFETY

Customer demand for analytical and environmental services is on the rise due to increasingly restrictive legislation and other economic and operational factors, resulting in a more efficient and individualised service. Aqualogy’s expert customer care is always tailored to meet the needs of its customers and quickly cover their needs in the provision of these services.

Aqualogy offers environmental consultancy and monitoring services (integrated environmental authorisations, discharge authorisations, environmental licences, advice in the interpretation of legislation, etc.) in the various scopes affecting industry: air, water, soil and waste. They include control of atmospheric emissions and ground-level concentrations, gas treatment solutions, water quality monitoring (wastewater, continental waters, surface water and groundwater) and environmental impact assessments, both in the natural environment and in industry, in addition to noise studies.

PROCESS ENGINEERING AND CONSUMPTION REDUCTION (WATER AND ENERGY)

One of today's most important environmental objectives for the industrial sector is the optimisation and reduction of water consumption in factories. Aqualogy's comprehensive vision and vast experience allow it to conduct studies and undertake projects with a view to optimising the various water flows applied in production processes in factories, fostering reuse at source and studying the best economically viable techniques available.

D&B of water treatment plants

D&B of water treatment plants

Aqualogy, dedicated to process engineering, studies, designs, builds and commissions treatment plants for drinking water, process water, wastewater and tertiary processes. It also provides solutions for the treatment of sludge and the mitigation of odours generated by water treatment activity. Aqualogy comprehensively manages the project as the sole contact (turnkey projects), offering the possibility of subsequently contracting the operation and maintenance of the facilities.

Water reuse systems

Water reuse systems

With the aim of optimising water consumption in production plants, Aqualogy conducts studies and undertakes projects to optimise the various water flows arising from manufacturing processes. With a comprehensive understanding of the uses of water in manufacturing plants and the needs of production processes, it studies, proposes and executes measures and projects to improve, optimise and reduce the consumption of water and associated scopes (energy, chemical reagents and sludge management).

Electrochemical technology

Electrochemical technology

Aqualogy employs the electrochemical technology necessary to treat water whose pollutants cannot be treated using conventional means or technologies.

This technology is based on the application of an electrical field between anodes and cathodes, made of a specific material for each application. The applied electrical current provides the electromotive force required to cause a series of chemical reactions that contribute to the destabilisation of pollutant molecules, leading to their precipitation and/or oxidation to more biodegradable compounds.
